End of an Era: "King of the Hill" to enter last season.

It is with great sadness that I note that the best show currently on television, Fox's Tex-centric "King of the Hill," will apparently end after completing the 2005-06 season, which will be its tenth season.

I always tried to figure out what town KOTH's fictional "Arlen, Texas" was modeled after, and although I could never pin it down exactly, I always thought that Harlingen was a strong possibility. (Arlen always had a rivalry with "McMaynerberry" -- McAllen, perhaps?)

The show had a few episodes actually involving birds, the gang even did the Backyard Bird Count in season 7 and hey, what other show on television makes Whataburger references?
